Does SP perform differently when image objects are embedded in the InfoPath form or linked?
I assume the linked images take a http location as opposed to a file server, correct?

Overall, your understanding is correct. How about the following scenarios:
- Insert (tab) -> Picture (button) will actually make a copy of the selected image object. It displayS the picture for you on the form.
- Insert (tab) -> Hyperlink (button) will remember the URL reference you supplied (during design time). It doesn't display the picture for you. You cannot change the supplied URL during runtime.
- Home (tab) -> Picture button (control) will store a copy of the selected picture.
- Home (tab) -> Picture (control) will remember the reference you supplied (during runtime). It do display the picture for you after a URL is supplied at runtime and you can change the URL at runtime as well. It doesn't allow to supplied a URL during design time.

A picture button does not appear to allow you to swap images. My images are for 'approvals', so when a user approves I want the image to change to a differnt image. :-)
I am going to experiment with adding the images into an asset library and them linking to the images instead of embedding the images inthe form.
